A New York appeals court has ruled Mayor Bloomberg's soda ban unconstitutional.

It's not because of the objective of the ban or anything; the court just said that the city's health department "had stepped beyond its power to regulate public health and usurped the policy-making role of the legislature."

But still. I can't stop laughing. I just find it irresistibly delightful that an appeals court told Mayor Bloomberg that his big stupid drinks ban is unconstitutional. Ha ha.

"But I REALLY WANT TO CURE ALL THE OBESITY by banning some sizes of some sugary drinks in some places!" *pouts*

"Nope." *drops gavel*
